LENT

This year, Lent lasts from Wed. 26th Feb. to Thursday 9th April 2020. Beginning on Ash Wednesday, Lent is a season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ's sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days. Lent is often marked by fasting or choosing to abstain from something. Lent (Latin: Quadragesima, 'Fortieth') is a time to prepare the believer for Easter through prayer, doing penance, mortifying the flesh, repentance of sins, almsgiving, and denial of ego. This event is observed in the Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, Oriental Orthodox, Reformed, and Roman Catholic Churches. Far from being a religious fad, regular fasting can make for better heart health and be linked to the way your body metabolizes cholesterol and sugar.
